can we share our vocabulary too?as in exchanging certain bombastic words which pull your essay marks up..
(hope the mods don't mind me posting this topic in the wrong place.i think it would be better for me to separate this from the english topic since that one has a wide coverage..thought it would more specific here..sorry..)
i would say using bombastic words just to pull up your essay mark trick will not work, unless u fully understand those words, and your vocabulary throughout the essay is consistent, or else, those words will be odd because they don't fit in, giving the grader an impression that the writer is not using 'suitable' words because most of the time, bombastic words have more 'restricted' meaning, and really, unless ur command of english is really good, where u fully understand the words u use, or else, don't push it too hard... or it will really backfire...
just my 2 cents.
want to improve the level of ur command of english ?? i would say start reading more english materials(fiction, nonfiction, news article)...
